12:00 am
sunday. now. we'll see you back here, same time, same place, same channel. >> tonight on huckabee. >> i want the members of this committee to find the facts for the families that lost their loved ones. >> speaker boehner announce a select committee. democrats a cows the republicans of playing politics. >> it is:te >> committee members join the governor tonight. >> guys, do you know what civics is? >> car. richard dreyfuss said the basic lack of knowledge of civics is the root of our nation's
12:01 am
problems. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. >> thank you. thank you very much. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city on mother's day weekend. freedom of speech is a bfl guarantee in the first amendment. they are if you are a liberal. but for christians and jews, the first amendment has been repealed it would seem. latest death penalty handed out who put faith and conviction are benam brothers. they were set to launch a new tv show on hgtv called flip it forward.
12:02 am
the show assists homeowners in the art of flipping a house. they have made millions doing that. and the house was touted with great fanfare. that is before right wing watch discovered the unthinkable. the benam brothers are christians. and not only they are christians but believe that unborn babies are human beings and shouldn't be killed and natural marriage of a man and woman is a valuable founding a for society. and in keeping with bibliical beliefs. even though the show was about houses and had nothing to do with the personal beliefs, the thought police on the left are intimidated by views other than their own they launched a bullying campaign and hgtv was a cowarly corporation that fold.
12:03 am
they are insecurity and opinion is anything other than their own and they trampled the first amendment rights to someone when they expressed openly their faith. to the everlasting credit of benam brothers unlike the cowardly brothers. the reaction to being cancelled so be it. our faith costs us how refreshing that they didn't cower and kaputulate and enroll in sensitivity or promise not to say going to offend whiny people who look at life in a mirror and never through the glass of others that might be different. it is okay to spew hate toward people who are holding bilibical. you can promote homosexualit and degradation of women and recreational drug use with
12:04 am
impunity. but god help you if you put in a good word for god. god better help you because no one else will. martin was a german pastor and an outspoken voice against hitler and said first they came for the socialist and i didn't speak up because i was not a socialist. and then the trade unionist because i was not a trade unionist. then they came for the jews, and i didn't speak out because i was not a jew. and then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me. i hope it is not too late to speak out before the first amendment is completely viserated. (applause) on friday, house speaker john boehner named six republican housemembers that will join trey
12:05 am
gowdy on the select committee. joining me is two of the meetings. congressman from kansas and linwest more land. it is great to have both of you here. (applause) congressman, let me begin with you. i think a lot of people wanted to get to the bottom of what happened in benghazi. do you feel confident that you are going to be able to get the right questions and the right witnesses, will you be able to compel people to come before the committee and give honest testimony? >> we will do all we can. we'll have subpoena power and we have a charge from the speaker to get all of the facts with about the events from that evening and how was the
12:06 am
decisions made. and ultimately understand what the administration was thinking in the aftermath when they told the american people a story that was not the truth. we owe the americans the facts and it is our charge and duty to go get them. >> congressman westmore land. what if the democrats don't appoint and will not show up, does that end the select committee or do you go forward without them and do the pest you can to present it as not a partisan issue but a search for truth? >> if they don't participate, the american people will so it for what it is. they want to be blame it on a partisan committee. but we'll go forward. i think as mike said, the speaker has assigned us to find out the truth. and as chairman gowdy said.
12:07 am
governor, in the end of the thing, we want american people to respect and honor the results of this committee, and see it as something that was fair and open. >> crum congressman, describe the difference between this committee and the perm nept select committee. there are different powers and abilities that this committee will have and not typical for a standing committee? >> governor huckabee, i appreciate the question. the speaker was reluctant to do this it. when mrs. pelosi said it is -- the committee will be able to focus. staff and council focused on it and the capacity to hold depositions and interview the witnesses anda
12:08 am
execute the mission statement that the speaker gave us. other committees have lots of different things to spend their time. this committee has a narrow charge to find the facts of september 11th, 2012. >> you mentioned former speaker and minority pelosi, let's hope she is never speaker again. (applause) >> but she called it a political stunt. democrats say what the republicans are doing is just that but according to a fox poll 60 percent of the americans believe there is an administration cover up and want congress to keep investigating. we'll
12:09 am
12:10 am
12:11 am
12:12 am
>> as somebody said to me yesterday. people are tired of benghazi or they never anyhow about it in the first place. don't be accomplices to a diversionary tactic. they don't want to talk about what our responsibilities are here. >> congressman westmoore land. i am offended. there are four dead americans and no one answered why they died and what could have been done to save them. who is responsible? when you hear nancy pelosi make comments, as a member of the committee, does it motivate you or make you angry and how do you approach the job in light of those kind of hostilities that you get from the other side? >> governor, it is it a continueiation of the message that then secretary of state hillary clinton said what difference does it make? it makes a difference to the
12:13 am
american people. the american people want to know the truth of what happened that night or early hours of the next day. they want to know the truth and we owe the truth to them, and we owe it to the four families that had loved ones murdered in this attack. congressman pampayo can you subpeona former secretary of state hillary clinton and survivors of benghazi and that were deep-sixed in the cia and state department to told not to talk. can you get testimony from them that we have not heard before? governor, i expect we will as part of our charge and mission. (applause) as a veteran, i know a couple of simple things in the military. if a soldier is down, we did
12:14 am
everything we could do to get them. we spared no resources to get them. >> the facts don't demonstrate that. we need to interview everybody there and talk to them all and community it to the american people. that's the charge we have and the duty that i am committed to being a part of. >> congressman, there was a little controversy the nrcc. sending out an a pole for funds and some critical saying it is a fund- raising mechanism. the nrcc is pulled away from anything resembling raising funds in lite of the select committee. is that a way to demonstrate it is not a witch hunt as described by%é nancy pelosi? governor, the whole intent. the speaker made it clear. the only intent, motorcycle and
12:15 am
i and trey and others on the group understand this. the sole purpose of the committee is to find out the truth and put the facts out in front of the american people. that is the purpose for the committee and nothing else. >> i want to thank you for being here. congressman, we are all hoping that your committee will be able to get to the truth for the sake of the families and every american that wants integrity in his government. >> thank you for having me. >> the chairman of the federal reserve doesn't know if america is a capitalistic society. and she said income inquality is a problem. why those words ought t
12:16 am
12:17 am
12:18 am
12:19 am
when the head of the federal reserves talks, wall street listen. fed chairman janet yellen answered questions about the economy and asked if america had gone from a capitalist democracy to an ollearchy. >> i don't know what to call our system and i prefer not to give labels, there is no question that woer had a trend of growing inquality. and i find it worry system trend that deserves the attention of policy makers. joining me is host of the lou dobbs and the author of a brand new bock called border war. lou dobbes.
12:20 am
>> i am stunned by the chairman of the fed. historeccally the fed chairman is careful about what they say. why does it matter that janet yellen said it on capitol hill? >> it matters i think because we are not used to as we said a fed chair speaking truth to the congress and american people and straightforwardedly. second it underlines and underscores what has dpn wrong in this country and that means looking at the issue of income inquality. and going beyond the normal patter of the left and looking to what is happening to a free enterprise capitalist economy and entrepreneurs are pushed back rather than being supported and that is the heart of the income inquality.
12:21 am
when we look at constant stress that is in the economy, we are going back wards to orth 2008 model. >> we are not looking at a bubble as much as people are suggesting that and interpreting that. what we have to do is look quarly and absolutely straightforwardly at the problems is faces. the chamber of commerce will not talk about outsourcing of jobs and working men and women s for that is a stunning statement and since 1993 and the advent of stock option there is an explosion of welt in the white collar excutives. we have to reconcile what we are doing. they are not accidents and this is not in fro erpt prize capitalism. this is venturism with other
12:22 am
people's money and taking advantage with the economic power of the men and women who make this counsel row work and that is the middle-class. >> the best way to fix it a responsible corporate governance? are there regulations to bring about a level of responsibility? >> in terms of regulations, we are blessed with a sufficient number of regulation. >> that is a fair statement, lou. >> and what i would like to so is real leadership rise up in the business community and we'll not take advantage of the middle-class and honor if you are the head of a major multinational or a small business. you say, we are looking for stake holders and the communities in which we work and sell our products and services and we are absolutely committed to education and continue to be
12:23 am
committed to education as business people and the private sector. and insist on local. and they want to control 100 percent of the decisions on textbooks and correct lumand who is teaching your children. that should be your choice. and the federal goff government and thexéch fda and national education. >> and tell me about the new border war and novel that is fascinating for you to take on with fiction. >> as's young reporter, 30 some-odd years ago, i worked on the border and learned a lot about mexico and this country and i watched what is changed and i think it is it a fascinating tale, but it is
12:24 am
based on reality. a border that is a cesspool of corruption and exploding with violence. not only on the south other than side of the border either. corruption on this and that side. >> it is a great idea. >> when the movie comes out, who will play me in the movie? i am waiting to see. great to see you and have you. >> pick up a copy of border wars. >> and constitution is the single most important document in all of american history yet it is baffling how little americans know about it. richard dreyfuss thinks that everyone ought to be more interested in civics. he city left
12:25 am
12:26 am
12:27 am
12:28 am
seven people dead. for all of your head leans go to fox nows.com. >> we live in the greatest
12:29 am
country in the world. we sent ryan reese out to find out how much americans know about how our country works. >> reporter: you know what civics is? >> car, honda. >> at any time take that place in school. >> i took it and passed i think. >> reporter: who is the current vice-president of the united states? >> i don't know. joe, joe. joe biden. >> reporter: what was one important thing abraham lincoln did? >> i know this. >> killed vampires. chopped down the cherrytro? >> no that was washington. it is on the penny. joishgs what month do we vote for president. >> june. >> what month is st. patrick's
12:30 am
day. april. >> can you name the sepreme law of the land. protect it or don't steal. >> what is the supreme burrito. taco bell. joishgs who is the chief commander of the military. >> oh, my god. who is in charge of the death star. >> that is dart vader. >> reporter: what are two cab bet level. >> senator. >> reporter: what are twoioga position. warrior pose, and child pose. >> reporter: where is the stat u of liberty. >> right here in texas. somewhere around here. it is over there. >> reporter: wow, you can't make this stuff up. >> the lack of knowledge and civics and appreciation of the constitution is the fundmental reason for americans problems.
12:31 am
richard dreyfuss joins us. i hear this is so troubling and people tend to not know about our country. why do people need ton about the constitution. >> we were responsible for the greatest revolution in the history of man's civilization. and we gave to 98 percent of the human race freedoms that they had lashed for and lost fingers for and had heads chopped off for and we gave it fro. and we are the most rev lougzary nation that has been and will be. and we don't know enough about our constitution or history to know why we should beçñ5; prou it. >> you know, richard, i admire you so many. unlike many people who use the constitution as a battering ram to push at a political position. you elevate the discussion above the partisan ship and steadiness
12:32 am
and look at the stand point of what makes america an exceptional country. do you find yourself saying gee, not many of us look at it like this? >> oh, yeah. every day. george washington said the constitution should be central and party periphial. and we have it back around the parties. and we don't know why the constitution is the most single greatest step for humans improving civilization since the beginning of man's sojourn on earth. >> you launched a significant effort called the dreyfuss project. describe what you are doing and bring it to the forefor americans. >> let me put it to you in this way. you will recognize thee.
12:33 am
we the people of the united states in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquilitty and provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare and secower the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our prosperity do ordain andgb the united states of america. is there anything in the statement that the people would disagree with? >> i can't imagine anybody wouldn't find comfort in the preamble to the constitution. >> i have spoke ep to 180,000 people and not one of them have disagreed to you. and yet when i went to washington and talked to the representative of the organization that repped them from right to the left, none of them were willing to sign it. i would like to say to you,
12:34 am
mike, i would like you to sign the prea.m.ble. and i would like to ask your audience to sign it and we have a half million signatures. i will call for a civil strike. and no one goes anywhere or buys or calls or nothing for 30 minutes. and not enough to hurt the economy but enough to remind them that we are there. we are the sovereignty pour in this country. (applause) >> you said, thank you. you said that we can choose to have a government. we don't choose. it is in the constitution. education is in the hands of the states and we have the right to tell the federal government to get the bleep out here. thank you for applauding. >> i tell you, you bet i will sign it and i will encourage everyone in our audience and i
12:35 am
will put it on my website and they can go to your website and sign it. >> i want to say the dreyfuss initiate that you are chairing and heading up is significant. and i hope people will recognize your leadership and we'll put a link to your website on mine. i want people to recognize that you are providing something that we haven't seen in a long time. and that is a appreciation of the united states of america. >> when you hear someone say american exceptionalism, you should turn to that person. if you don't prove that statement i will hit you right in the mouth. >> they don't and they can. >> and richard, thank you for being here. i look forward to seeing you again soon. >> scientist continue to search for a cancer cure. and a drug that help you live

12:42 am
and doing gang busters. and the fda now decideed to give it a break through desination and that means that now, they will try to get it to the public as quickly as public. they are going to fast track it and i happen to be on the drug and in a phase one with eli lilly and they are pushing ahead with a drug that is almost identical. and i have had no side-effects other than than being tired. many of the times i had no hair and i haven't been feeling great, and this drug that i am doing, has really no side-effects. it is go to the cancer cells in my liver and it is not growing, it is just stopped and even though it is not getting smaller it stopped and that means it is it a win.

happy mother's day to all of you. let me say we've got some of the mothers of some of our staff members here in our audience and we're so very grateful to welcome them as we welcome all mothers all over america. one personal note. this weekend is my granddaughter's second birthday, little scarlet turns 2 this weekend. so to her mother and grandmother i'd better say happy mother's day. this is mother's day weekend but hopefully you already knew that. now, you'd better get your wife or mother something to say thanks about. but hopefully you already knew that too. what you might not have known is that maybe one of the most wonderful tributes to a mother that you'll ever hear came this
12:58 am
week from nba superstar kevindu thunder who was named the most valuable player of the nba. his acceptance speech was not the boilerplate and barely sincere oh, thank god my teammates and my family kind of stuff that you hear. it was an emotional and a heartfelt expression. something that you don't hardly see in a super charged athlete. humility. what causes one to break out the beach towel and cry an ocean of tears is the tribute that kevin durant gave to his mother. >> tods were stacked against us. single parent with two boys by the time you were 21 years old, we weren't supposed to be here. you made us believe. you kept us off the street, you put clothes on our backs, fad on the table, when you didn't eat, you made sure we ate. you went to sleep hungry. you sacrificed for us.
12:59 am
you're the real mvp. >> oh, wow! kevin durant is a tough guy who plays a tough game of professional basketball. but he's not ashamed of who he is because he knows what a blessing he received to have a mom who believed in him and like a mother bear, always protected her cub. that cub is now a full grown grizzly. and i get the idea that no one had ever better mess with mama bear. as surely as she took care of her son when he was little, she would do anything now. to hear a professional athlete talk about love, honor, respect and appreciation. kevin durant set a high standard but one that i wish would become the norm in professional sports. i don't usually follow the nba a lot but after this, i want to follow kevin durant. and i hope a lot of other
